Democrats aim at Pawlenty
ST. PAUL - Talk about Gov. Tim Pawlenty being John McCain's running mate is escalating in light of Mitt Romney's campaign suspension.
Minnesota's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party took the opportunity to offer up a preview of what fellow Democrats will say if Pawlenty, McCain's national campaign co-chairman, becomes the GOP vice presidential candidate.
For instance: "Pawlenty was unable to carry Minnesota for his endorsed candidate at GOP precinct caucuses, while DFL caucus turnout dwarfed Republican turnout by close to a factor of four."
Another DFL jab reminds people that under Pawlenty's watch, his party lost control of the Minnesota House.
Finally: "With economic issues rising to the forefront of voters' concerns nationally, Pawlenty has presided over dramatic job losses and Minnesota's slide into recession."
